Ms. Fitzpatrick, a Jupiter, Fla., blogger and freelance writer, finds that PTAs, church groups and charities zero in on people like her—those who don't work in an office. "You're expected to pull the weight of all the people who can't," she says. "It's as if I have to explain what I do all day." A veteran stay-at-home mom who has been saddled with looking after the kids of working parents, Ms. Fitzpatrick says that at times she has felt like "the doormat of the neighborhood."
The internet has provided these doormats with an outlet to vent, a community to vent to, and the courage to just say no. So don't be surprised if they next time you call your stay/work-at-home friend asking for a little help you get a less than pleasant response and the phone slammed down in your ear.
In case you are wondering the "I AM NOT YOUR DOORMAT" doormat is available at the Neatoshop. It's the perfect I'm sorry gift for your stay/work-at-home friend.
